Millimpedement


Ten-thousand steps.

I wish I were a millipede with a thousand tiny feet.

Not a fluke or caterpillar. Neither worm nor centipede.

Not dog or cat with four small legs or human with just two.

For none of these could walk the steps to do their little bit

in ten small steps to count themselves healthy and fit.

So, I wish I were a millipede with a thousand tiny feet.
